1. Wallpaper

If you don’t want to paint your walls because you can’t make up your mind or if you want something a bit more complicated and you know it’s hard to achieve it with only paint, then wallpaper is your friend.

You can decorate your empty wall in just a couple of minutes with a cover that isn’t messy but has a nice print on it and when you get bored of it, bang, you immediately change it.

You can choose a color that complements the style of your room, or you can go for a pattern to add more texture and volume to your house. It will look wonderful!

2. Mirror

What’s the easiest way to get rid of an empty wall? Just add a mirror and let it shine! You can either choose a bigger one, or you can go to the closest store and pick up a few smaller-sized ones to create a nice ornament.

They reflect light, and they can even make your room seem more spacious and welcoming. And let’s not forget that you can easily check how your hair or makeup looks before you head out.

3. Textiles

If you have any lovely textiles, like tapestries, antique quilts, and wool blankets from the 1800s (lucky you), you should display them, rather than tuck them away.

You can add personality and texture to any room by hanging the cloth on the wall. (Hanging a curtain rod from the wall and using some pretty clip-style rings to fasten the fabric is the easiest method to achieve this classic and effortless look).

You can also use color to give your room a harmonious overall aesthetic that is to die for. Just make sure the colors complement the rest of your home’s design, or use the wall as color inspiration for the rest of your room.

Is there anybody left who isn’t fully convinced yet? One advantage of hanging a light blanket or throwing it on the wall is that it might help a room seem cozier and more welcoming, which is perfect for the cold months of winter. And if you live in an apartment, this might also decrease the volume of noise that comes from the people above you.

4. Shelves

If you love art and you want to turn your room into something stylish and special, you can choose some floating shelves to achieve that beautiful and elegant look that you want. Not only will they cover that empty wall, but they’ll also serve as a great decor item.

You can place your artwork, jewelry cases, books, tiny trinkets, and so many other things there, and the results will be marvelous. Experts recommend using a long floating shelf to put your pieces in a neat row instead of putting up a jumbled gallery wall.

You won’t have to worry about spackling a bunch of holes in the wall, and you can swap out the art and other items as you please, changing out the frames as you change your design.

If you, too, are lacking in suitable wall decoration, we suggest reusing old calendars into suitable picture frames. For less than $30, you can have beautiful images big enough to cover a whole wall. Trust us, it’s amazing.

5. Mural

Mural art is one of the best ways to cover up a boring, empty wall. If you collaborate with an artist who knows what they’re doing and who can understand your vision, it can perfectly suit the design and feel of your home and also highlight your place.

If you’re not a homeowner and you don’t want to leave any permanent marks, you can choose a temporary mural and have the same dramatic effect. These murals have an adhesive backing, so they can be applied to an empty wall with no effort (simply remove the backing and smooth it on your empty wall), and they can be removed cleanly when it’s time to relocate.

6. Hangings

If you’re more into hangings and you’re also a fan of the boho aesthetic, you’ll be happy to hear that wall hanging are made out of fabric and yarn and they look very cozy on an empty wall.

The Internet is FULL of DIY guides for wall hangings, so you can easily make your own macramé, fringe, or fabric in a variety of colors and styles. You can do more than just accent or update the decor with a wall hanging; you can also bring in new colors and materials, and turn your home into the relaxing oasis that you deserve.

7. Ladder

Did you know that you can get rid of your empty wall by propping a ladder against it? It might not be something that you see everywhere, but it’s a nice and modern touch to a boho and rustic style.

There’s no need for a very tall ladder, but it helps to give visual variety by having several different sizes and heights. You can display some soft fabrics on the rungs of a ladder, and the ladder itself can be used to showcase accessories like shoes, glasses, and hats, making it an ideal addition to an entrance.

8. Wall cover

You can cover your empty walls with sculpted tiles, metal wall panels, hardwood planks, acoustic fabric panels, or any number of other textured materials. The most common choice is wood, since its natural beauty and comforting warmth never go out of style.

You can go for something colorful if you want to create a bold and vibrant room, or you can choose something neutral, like beige or white, for a minimal and soft style.

9. Galery wall

Group exhibitions of artwork are like chocolate: you can never have too much of a good thing. Speaking of that, you should never underestimate the impact of a well-designed gallery wall.

If you’re into arts and crafts, or if you have any grandchildren who like to create beautiful paintings or drawings for you, don’t put them in a drawer where you’re going to forget about them, but turn them into a nice decor item to get rid of that empty wall of yours.

This way, negative space is reduced, and the desired mood is amplified thanks to the use of color, texture, and pattern. To achieve a harmonious visual balance, try hanging 2 larger pieces on a diagonal from each other and then filling the empty space above and below each of those larger pieces with smaller ones (sticking to similar colors or subjects will look extra pulled-together, or choosing things from the same chromatic palette will achieve a polished result).
